Healer is his reputation 
Forgiver known to be
Friend of saints and sinners
But there’s more than what we see
A skilled and steady hand
Takes a blade and cuts away
The self-adoring cancer
That leads the heart astray
Unwilling to surrender
Our souls to sin’s disease
He brings a painful answer
That leads to greater peace
“I’ve come to bring the sword
cutting marrow from the bone”
This his declaration
As our life he does atone
Whatever it may be
That keeps us trapped within
Is the target of his scalpel
Until the fight he surely wins
So hear these words not said
That unto you this day is born
A surgeon of great skill
Who is Jesus Christ the Lord
